Kathy Sullivan: NOAA Resumes Hiring, Training Programs

Kathy SullivanThe National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration has resumed its hiring and training programs after a long freeze due to sequestration, GovExec reported Friday.

Eric Katz writes Kathy Sullivan, acting NOAA administrator, attributed the lift on hiring and training to an increase in fiscal 2014 funding for the agency.

“The omnibus gives us certainty about our spending authority for this fiscal year and restores some of the funds cut under sequestration,” Sullivan told NOAA employees.

Congress allocated $5.3 billion in fiscal 2014 spending for NOAA, $310 million more than it received in the fiscal 2013 budget, according to the report.
